    I am thinking of taking on a project but not exactly sure how much to charge.
    It is a dynamic flash site with:
    (1) A Flash Intro with music and animation.
    (2) It has 7 Pages: .
    -About us/The company
    -Collections - a gallery of collections of clothes..
    -Shop - to include paypal and google checkout payment options.
    -Club/private section - Private Clubs and Services Invite only for guest (login/register system needed)
    -Contact - to include contact form and call me links for skype..

    Im at a loss as to what to charge for this as i am kind of new to this business, please help..

    You'll find this to be the hardest aspect of being a contractor in this industry.
    Unfortunately there's no easy answer to your question... Basically you determine an hourly rate that
    1) you think fairly reflects your skill level
    2) covers whatever overhead you may have
    3) what the project's target-aim is (does the site make money or informational).
    You could also make an argument that the "size" of your client's company should play a role.

    Hi there, welcome aboard!

    Pricing really depends on someone's skills. If you think you are skilled enough to complete the project in a month's time then good.

    The Shop alone may take almost 3 weeks to program. Then you will integrate the design and work on the animation. If it will be a dynamic site, well and good so you don't need to create every new pages.

    My calculation on such work will take at least 5 weeks if you'll work 8-10 hours a day. Design & development. That includes debugging and testing of the shop feature.

    As for the cost, perhaps you can bill your client of about $1,300 to $1,600. that is if you will charge at least $50-$60 an hour.

    Just my two cents.
